We are looking at coming to the Destin area for a week at the end of April/early May. We have two children-one that is 4 and one that is 17 months.
In the past we have gone to Galveston (close but not to our liking) and South Padre Island (8 hours away, and more to our liking). I'm assuming that the Destin area is more like South Padre-is that correct? Since the drive should be about 10-10.5 hours it is not that much farther than South Padre.
I've read postings on Jetty East/Islander. They both seem like nice condos, but it does not appear that they have a washer/dryer in the units. Perhaps it is bad childhood memories of dragging laundry to the Laundromat, but I would prefer a condo with a w/d in the unit.
Can anyone recommend one that is gulf front?
Also, what are some of the local grocery stores? We usually eat most meals in the condo and having a well stocked grocery nearby is nice.
Thanks for any information given!
